Abstract :
Having in mind the enourmous significance of the Faras paintings for the understanding of Nubian art, the author evaluates some of Michałowski's conclusions on the chronology of the Faras cathedral and its paintings, and examines some facts of the building's history once again. He characterises the Faras paintings in direct relation to the building's history and proposes to define three periods in their development.
